    Journal Writing

    Any journal writers out there? I've always written sporadically in a journal. Always handwritten. But I've just recently decided to do it on the computer. I've resisted since handwritten is more personal/traditional. But I get so much more done on the computer, and I can add photos. I think I like it.

    Are you a journal writer? Handwritten or computer? Everyday or when the mood strikes?

    Re: Journal Writing

    I have only hand written a journal during VERY stressful times in my life.

    I do have an online journal. I like being able to add pictures and video to it. I update it when the mood strikes.

    Constantly up, until, I don't know, August? Yeah. August. Now I only write when the mood strikes.

    Re: Journal Writing

    I have a journal that I write in when I feel that I can't write fiction, I need to just get all the ARGH! out in. I handwrite and if you read it you can tell based on my style of my handwriting what type of mood I am in (the more irked the tinier meaner the writing, compared to when I am trying to "hold it in" it's perfect teacher writing. Cursive is when I am happy.). It's this cheapy journal with what looks to be Syd Bristow jogging with a pink and purple background (mod squares).

    Re: Journal Writing

    Have kept a handwritten journal since I was very young. More sporadic lately, though I record my dreams in one for the last... five years, maybe. I record my dreams and any musings that it sparks.

    I do have an online one that I write in when the mood strikes, usually every couple of days.

    PS: Among the "absolutes" in Tiggs and mine relationship is no reading of the journals. I have to have that safe place. Plus, many of my musings something take on a creative flair--regardless of truth or not. Sometimes I tweak tales I'd created and I'm afraid he'd pick it up and think that two pages on the power of poisonings are something he should be worried about.

    Re: Journal Writing

    My mother read my journal when I was a kid. I was less than pleased but not surprised. She wanted to get to know me.

    Not quite what I had in mind, thanks.

    My mom told me about two years ago she would read our journals in our teens. She was just afraid we were getting into trouble. Mine was boring though. My sister's...

    Re: Journal Writing

    I started a hand written journal when I was 5 months pregnant with my daughter and have continued it throughout her life of all the wonderful things that she learned to do as a baby, funny things she said that I wanted to remember, and things happening within our family. She's 5 yrs old now, and there are 5 books. I don't write as often as I'd like, but I write from time to time. I wanted to give them to her in her time capsule when she's 21.

    Re: Journal Writing

    I have an online journal for pictures and use it mainly to communicate with my friends who are away at college-- as a way to let them all know what is going on in my life. I have a handwritten one where I write about more personal things and write in it practically every day!

    yes. lol

    My daughter can expect privacy until she does soemthign that looses my trust in her. One time when she left the house in the middle of the night and did not come home until the next day I went through her stuff, but she knew I did. I left it out all over her bed and desk.

    She was 12 then and it took her 4 years to earn my trust back. I did not keep going through her room, but she was not allowed to do much.

    Re: Journal Writing

    I've written a journal consistently since I was about...12? I'm 25 now. The journal is more electronic now, and like QuietViolet, I use it mostly to keep in touch with my friends, who are currently scattered all over the country.

    What's weird, though, is going back and reading the ones from when I was younger. I feel very uncomfortable when I do that. Like...maybe I'm violating my younger self? But that doesn't make any sense.

    I did nothing to wreck my mother's trust in me. She said she wanted to get to know me.
